History Biographical
The Ottawa Jewish Archives (OJA) began in a very small space in the old Jewish Community Centre, 151 Chapel Street, where important documents were saved, early photographs copied, and oral histories recorded on audio cassette. It reached full operation by the late 1970's when the archives received enlarged space on the second floor of the Centre in a former classroom. The Archives’ growth also came from the guidance and vitality of the first archivist, Shirley Berman, who retired in the fall of 1998. With the interest and support of the Ottawa Jewish Historical Society, Ottawa Vaad Ha’Ir, Ontario Association of Archivists, and a very loyal group of volunteers, the OJA has been able to expand, publicize its activities and gradually organize the holdings according to archival standards. In the fall of 1999, the OJA moved to its new location in the Soloway Jewish Community Centre in the Joseph and Rose Ages Family Building in the west end of Ottawa. The new archival facilities are modern with moveable shelving within a temperature and humidity controlled vault. Archivists: Shirley Berman 1969-1998 Dawn Logan 1999-2008 Marcia Rak (Assistant Archivist) 1999-2007 Laurie Dougherty (Assistant Archivist) 2007-2008 Laurie Dougherty 2009-2012 Emily Leonoff 2012-2014

History Biographical
The Ottawa Jewish Archives has within its collection a small number of theses written by students mostly from Canada, but overseas as well. To be included, a thesis paper must have some connection to Canadian Jewish history; though the majority deal specifically with some aspect of Jewish Ottawa. The majority were written with information and research stemming from the Archives' holdings.
